Story
Millie’s Last Hope In the quiet corners of our hearts, where love and loss intertwine, there exists a tale of a little dog named Millie. She was a survivor—a testament to resilience and the enduring spirit of those who have known pain. Six years old, Millie bore the scars of a past that haunted her every step. Her eyes held secrets, memories etched into their depths. We took her in, my family and I, hoping to mend what life had broken. But some wounds run too deep, and Millie carried hers like a fragile treasure. She learned our house rules swiftly, as if she’d been waiting for a chance to belong. Potty trained, well-mannered, she moved through our home with grace. Her overbite—a charming imperfection—made her unique, a gentle reminder that beauty lies in our flaws. Millie’s heart overflowed with love. She adored children, their laughter a balm to her soul. Infants, toddlers, and kids—she welcomed them all. Perhaps it was her uncertain lineage—a mix. She needs a new home a forever

Story
We are so happy to introduce you to Toasted Marshmallow and thanks to the shelter his lab work and dental have been performed and he's available for adoption. He's been in a foster home for 2 weeks and this is what we've learned, Toasted Marshmallow is a delight! He has the energy of a much younger dog. I would say he's the most fun loving dog I've ever had live with me. He's so good, quiet, and lovable. He follows me around everywhere. Toasted Marshmallow checks all the boxes, except he hasn't been exposed to cats, but his demeaner tells us he would likely welcome any creature into his realm.Meet 13-year-old Toasted Marshmallow--named by my 13-year-old daughter because this adorable and fun-loving Maltese-Poodle (Maltipoo) has one rear brown paw from the dominating gene of the brown poodle. Marshmallow is healthy and loves to sleep in your lap after a playful round of scratch my butt. He is very obedient and when not receiving attention, he will quietly cuddle himself in his bed. Marshmallow was recently neutered and had a dental that removed many rotten teeth. He has healed quickly and is waiting patiently for his forever home and family.

Story
Meet Coffee Shop Chrissy! Coffee Shop Chrissy entered Redlands Animal Shelter as a stray. When she wasn't reclaimed, we scooped her up on March 21st. Chrissy is 16 years old and weighs 11 lbs. She is feeling better after a much-needed haircut and grooming! Coffee Shop Chrissy went on a two-week Frosted Fling, so we could learn what she is like in a home. Her Fling Mom reports: "Coffee Club Chrissy made a little progress during her time with me. She no longer flinches and jerks away from me when I touch her. Here's what I've learned about her: - She's a good eater - She gets along with everyone - She prefers to go potty outside if she can get there - She can't hear much, if anything at all - She has limited eyesight and will flinch when something will appear in front of her, or if she walks from shade into sunlight - She is not interested in walks but may enjoy a stroller ride - Her favorite pastimes are sleeping and eating - She loves ear and butt rubs - She sleeps through the night in her pen (so she doesn't get lost or stuck somewhere) - She is very quiet Chrissy is a lovely old lady. She just needs to know someone is there for her." While Chrissy waits for her forevery family, she is on second Fling. We are so glad she is receiving extra TLC in the comforts of a home. Her Fling Mom shares: "Coffee Shop Chrissy is a beautiful flower in my bountiful garden of pups. Honestly, I would keep her, but we need your help. Please find a soft spot in your heart to give her a forever home. I just can't take her traveling with us. It wouldn't be fair to her. She needs a familiar place to hang out. She eats well, takes only a pain pill twice a day in her food, and prefers to go potty outside. Otherwise she will use a potty pad. She is a quiet, gentle soul." Coffee Shop Chrissy needs a loving home for the remainder of her life. She doesn't ask for much other than to be treated with understanding and gentle care. If you have a spot in your heart for this sweet super senior, please let us know!

Story
Meet Columbia! 7-year-old Columbia came to us from Inland Valley Humane Society S.P.C.A. on May 22nd. She is a very sweet and spunky girl who doesn't let recovering from a leg injury slow her down, as you can see in the video! She weighs 10.6 lbs. Columbia asks that you go slow with her, but once she knows you. she's all in for kisses and belly rubs! She's very very fast too, so make sure you have a tight grip on her leash! Columbia is currently on a two-week Frosted Fling, so we can learn what she is like in a home. We received a great first update from her Fling Mom: "Columbia is the cutest. She's still skittish about loud noises and moving towards her too quickly, but she is becoming more confident every day. Columbia has a sore on her paw but seems to be putting more weight on it. She gets excited to go for walks and doesn't pull on leash. She's gotten used to the sling I bring on longer walks, so she can rest her sore arm. She is playful and likes balls and soft toys. Columbia does fine at the dog park and is polite and curious with the other dogs, but mostly uninterested. She hasn't been very interested in my dog at home so far either, but seems to like being near him. Columbia is a great girl who just wants to be adored and feel safe and have a little fun." Enjoy the video of this cutie playing, and check back soon for the next update!
